Wireless Internet: How It Works
Colorado Central Telecom connects rural residents, many of whom are unable to obtain Internet service from traditional providers.
We’re able to provide those rural connections because we use new, innovative technology that lets us reach the unreachable.
Here’s how it works:
Our towers beam Internet service to a dish on your house, which is connected to a Wi-Fi router that provides online access.
Your Internet traffic travels back and forth from the Wi-Fi router, dish and tower, allowing you to stream movies, connect on social media and surf the web.
It’s not just fast; it’s reliable. We leverage three different sources of backhaul – the link between our network and the World Wide Web – to ensure a redundant connection that won’t let you down.
This network of backhaul, towers and on-site equipment is called fixed wireless Internet service. It doesn’t require miles of costly underground cables or sluggish satellite connections to reach rural areas — that’s why we’re the go-to Internet provider for rural Coloradans in Chaffee and Lake counties.
